Last Minute Project---Trick or Treat Bag for Lily


This is the first year Lily is going trick-or-treating. I whipped up this bag this afternoon as she is going at 5:30 with Daddy!

I digitized the in-the-hoop bag for my 8*14 hoop. The handles were attached in the hoop too.

Trick or treat is from Julia's needles and the skull was a freebie from urban threads. As the "or" is black, I skipped the color and was going to come back to it after stitching the black color for the skull and guess what, or course I forgot about it. So I had to use a marker to write it.

I was ambitious to make it pretty on both sides, but it took way too long for just this side. So I skipped the designs on the other side and just attached the handles in the hoop and sewed the two pieces together in that hooping too.

We have way too many candies ourselves (not too many kids here) and she didn't really understand what she was doing. But she had some fun and ate some candies last night. Good thing she forgot about candies today.

What a great bag to get done at the last minute! I love how you were able to do it all in the hoop! I'm sure your daughter had a great time trick or treating with Dad with such a great bag to collect the candy!

Thank you! Unfortunately it was raining and extremely cold yesterday evening. I tried my best to dress her warm and still be a bumblebee, but she and Daddy came home early too cold. She doesn't really know what she was doing, but I think she had some fun and of course got some candies.

I do love to sew the handles on in the hoop as that's the part I hate the most when I make bags.
